I Have To Talk A Lot At Work How Can I Protect My Voice
By speaking properly: Speaking is like anything we do. It can be done well or done poorly. There is a proper way to speak involving good breathing and "support" combined with a relaxed neck and voice box. A lot of people don't breath properly and "squeeze" or tense their throat muscles when they speak. These people will feel tired and uncomfortable after speaking a lot. A speech therapist can fix this. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Adding Singulair (montelukast): If you have used you proair or ventolin properly (inhale slowly in) , you may try upping the dose to 4 inhalations. Otherwise consider a trial with singulair (montelukast). Be sure that the breathing problem is from asthma. If the onset is less than 10 minutes, you may have what one calls vocal cord dysfunction which would not usually be helped by a bronchodilator. ...Read more

Well i want to know if ill get caught on thursday am about to join a soccer team for highschool, the coach told me to go get a check up from the doctor and i smoked weed today i don't know if i can make it.
Probably not: If they are doing a drug test. It would seem that smoking weed is more important to you than getting on the team. Am also a tad confused that you list your age as 23 years old and you are going out for a high school soccer team? Something doesn't make sense here. I think you need to talk to a counselor about your use of weed and how much it may be getting in the way of the rest of your life. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Overactive metabol: 31 F from S AFRICA notes she has "overactive metabolism" and can't gain wt. ANS: need to find out cause of overactive metabolism. So see your medical team and be certain they check your thyroid to see if it is overactive. Google Grave's opthalmopathy images and see if your eyes look like this. I specialize in this and happy to do second opinion, ...Read more
Voice rest: If this happened along with a cold, then we think of acute laryngitis. There is no great way to get your voice back other than to avoid using your vocal cords as much as possible, and humidified air. Antibiotics are of little help (b/c mostly caused by virus). Systemic steroids (prednisone) are sometimes prescribed to public speakers or singers, but there are side effects. Best of luck! ...Read more
